New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught five passes for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football. Gronk was targeted seven times and finished with an 118 yards per catch average. In his return through four games, he has caught 24 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns. Tom Brady has targeted him 40 times for a ten target average.
Fantasy impact: Coming back from multiple injuries, Gronk eliminated any notion he would be a decoy and has steadily put up good numbers. He is averaging 85.9 yards per game as well. Gronk will remain a must start in all fantasy leagues and should continue to get plenty of targets and opportunities from quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots will face the Denver Broncos in Week 12. The Broncos are giving up the eight most fantasy points to tight ends.
